We just took a chance that the protest would be over |
and the bridge unblocked so I could get on a flight
to Seattle this afternoon - "no possible"! The policeman at the roadblock (the road from Lomeli's office to the bridge is blocked with very large tanker-trucks) said it would be blocked for two days, but I've also heard that it could go on for 4 days. Alaska Air was very sympathetic and re-booked me for a flight out of P.V. tomorrow - no cancellation charge. I guess the only way to get from here to there now is to go to Autlan, take a winding back road to Colima, then drive to Manzanillo. My guess is that would take 4 or 5 hours, so I really feel for the people coming into Manzanillo and wanting to get home to L.M. - Vive Mexico indeed.
